Obama not so terrible; still going to lose

The debacle in Denver is just a dot in Barack Obama’s rear-view mirror and he showed up for the second debate at Hofstra University in better form. Chances are it had something to do with the new Presidential Pharmacologist. Regardless, most Democrats in the media are gleefully and predictably declaring victory. Well, it is a victory: it’s a moral victory, and those are for losers.

Other media fanboys, fangirls, and Democrat operatives won’t see it as a moral victory, they’ll see it as a relative victory; that is, Obama was better than before. Relative victories are also for losers. Were they actually fearful Obama would perform more poorly than in the first debate?

The bummer for Obama is he now needs a knockout October surprise, whether it’s at the next debate, in some sort of miracle regarding the economy, some devastating personal information on Mitt Romney, or being able to climb out of Benghazigate with the Administration’s dignity enhanced.

All appear unlikely.

Plus, the President has this thing that follows him everywhere he goes and it ain’t his shadow. It’s his record.

This will not end well for Barry.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.

  1. I agree. There will be no post debate bounce for Obama. Here is just one example: Benghazi is a political dog turd for Barack Obama. He and Candy Crowley can try to mold it into a unicorn, but it remains a turd.

    But the issue most undecideds are focused on is the economy. Did you get any sense of what positive vision Obama has on that? Me neither. And more importantly, focus groups afterwards did not say they were going for Obama. If they just split even, Obama loses.

    • It’s said ‘Obama stopped the bleeding.’ His problem is he’s been out of blood for some time. To me, his campaign looks more and more terminal each passing day. I’d expect a number of last-minute/wait-and-see voters to swing to Romney and that Barry’s hope-and-changers of 2008 will be depressed and stay home (or will be voting Romney). We will see.
